Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Kookaburra Creek Café and The Cottage at Rosella Cove.

A year is a long time in the memory of a small town. Stories get twisted, truths become warped, history is rewritten.

Mysteries

When Laura discovers an old photo of her grandmother, Lillian, with an intriguing inscription on the back, she heads to the sleepy seaside town of Banksia Bay to learn the truth of Lillian’s past. But when she arrives, Laura finds a community where everyone seems to be hiding something.

Secrets

Virginia, owner of the iconic Beach Shack café, has kept her past buried for 60 years. As Laura slowly uncovers the tragic fragments of that summer so long ago, Virginia must decide whether to hold on to her secrets or set the truth free.

Lies

Young Gigi and Lily come from different worlds but forge an unbreakable bond – the ‘Sisters of Summer’. But in 1961 a chain of events is set off that reaches far into the future. One lie told. One lie to set someone free. One lie that changes the course of so many lives.

Welcome to the Banksia Bay Beach Shack, where first love is found and last chances are taken....

Well, I wasn't expecting that!

Totally sucked in by this beautifully structured story, the twists and turns keep coming. Just when I thought I had all figured out.... bam! Loved it!
